Maybe it didn't phase your passenger; but it sure phased me ! I had visions of you smiting armco on both sides & with both ends!

What I learned? Toyo T1R's on a Z06 in the rain rock. Also I shouldn't have done laps in it. I'm not supposed to buy one for at least another year but......

Nice bit of road between Hopetown and Calabogie.
Knowing that the traffic in to Arnprior was probably backed up to the Calabogie turnoff on the 17 particularly due to the fact that it was the last day of a long weekend, I took a right at Burnstown, through White Lake and then in to Arnprior. Wow. What a huge time savings! Didn't even have to wait at the main light on the highway at Arnprior. There was almost no traffic coming in from White Lake, briefly slowed at the light to look to the West up the highway, had a good chuckle at all the cottagers coming home (and probably some of you poor bastards stuck in that crap), turned right on to the 17 and in no time was making great time on the divided 417 back in to Ottawa.
Big thanks to Guy for loaning me his trailer, and to Greg for breaking in his new truck dragging my car back to his place.
